    Plenty of players test positive for performance enhancing drugs. But the Seahawks definitely are in the midst of a troubling trend.

    As pointed out by Eric D. Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune, defensive end Bruce Irvin has become the sixth Seahawks player to test positive for performance enhancing drugs since 2011.

    The others are cornerback Brandon Browner, safety Winston Guy, offensive lineman John Moffitt, offensive lineman Allen Barbre, and cornerback Richard Sherman.

    Pretty sure Pete Carroll wouldn't cheat.

    On the topic of Irvin, specifically, his compiled twitter response was actually pretty impressive, imho.

    I appreciate that he apologized for messing up, but this wasn't like he didn't know it was wrong when he took the PED, sooo what kinda response did he expect to get after it got out.

    What some players don't realize is that you can still be a fan while acknowledging their mess ups. But they are gonna get clowned for messing up.

    How come this isn't a bigger story with the media? 6 players in 2 years, that's quite a bit.

    Pete Carroll teams are not above breaking the rules to win games... (See USC)

    4 game suspensions are a joke and cheaters wont stop till we have a bigger deterrent.

    Don't they lose those game checks? Something tells me 25% of their salary is a pretty big deterrent.

    4 games suspension is really nothing. It should be more than that. At least 8 games for starters and full season in the second attempt and lifetime ban for the third time.

    They kicked our butts... but the way the did it was just astounding. It was the most physically dominated I've seen the Cowboys since we were shut out by the Ravens during their 1st superbowl year. I actually admired them a bit for it.

    I don't like to accuse, so I won't. But I wouldn't be surprised if more of their players were exposed.

    Adderall heightens the senses (spidey sense), and heightens focus and reaction time. Taken in higher doses, it's powerful stuff. It's like getting a dose of adrenaline.

    If you're making say 4 mill a year i'm fairly sure you'd be able to scrape by on 3

    If it was such a big deterrent we wouldn't see this all the time

    Adderall is intense stuff. Heightens your senses and gives you major energy. It's basically speed.

    It's funny how people consider the Cowboys a team full of criminals and thugs yet when ever you list stuff like this not a single name on the list is a Cowboy.

    If you look at arrests in the league over the past decade we'd be near the bottom of that too
